, harry reid, un-american, nancy pelosi runs the house, talking about fascist tactics, at least the democrats talking crazy are running washington, d.c. our people are talking about death panels aren't elected. >> the republicans who are elected clearly or not making enough good noise. >> you know what, let's just call them out right now. let's just do it. since i lovemaki making everybo. tim pawlenty has a responsibility to distance himself from death panel talk. yesterday, we had the chairman of the gop, michael steele, a guy i like very much personally. the next time he believes whether the legislation has death panels in it. he needs to say, no, it does not. the virginia governor, he needs to come out and distance himself from nancy pelosi saying that these tactics are un-american -- >> we tried with michael steele yesterday. >> i'm just saying, there's all of this uncontrolled rage out there, i think leaders of both parties have to be called on the carpet and distance themselves from the crazy rhetoric that's out there, whether it's coming from nancy pelosi or harry reid ca
will not be reelected if i have this big tax increase. sean: harry reid and his staff are saying that this new option that we keep hearing about which is the reconciliation process, he uses any means legislatively necessary that they will use. you do not think they will use that? no. there is no way they can do with. nancy pelosi said a month ago that she had all of the votes. there are 100 votes she does not have. they do not have them. we all have to stay very active and keep going to the town hall meetings and let them know what we believe. sean: i have a number of articles. i have spent a lot of time investigating the systems. we will have a special tomorrow night to talk about this. the canadian medical association is saying that canada care is imploding. they will have to cut thousands of surgery's because they cannot afford them. one woman had to give birth on the pavement because they would not send an ambulance for her. is that what would happen here? >> absolutely. every government plan has a long waiting lists. they all end up the same way. gordon brown, the prime minister of the u.k. had
changes. the white house would be able to -- does not get removed in advance. the spokesman for harry reid says democrats have not reached a decision yet, but did say, quote -- just today, mitt romney arty, work together with the middle of his party, republicans as well, and get a plan that gets people insured without having a government take over insurance. >> joining us now, chuck todd. what's going on right now, the president trying to address democrats, trying to get them more energized, how's that going over? >> well, look, i mean, this is not new. the white house has said this for months they would do this. saying look rk they're going to get a bill whatever it takes and if republicans are at the table, fine. if they're not, fine. they'll go another way. they have the votes to do that. i think part of the strategy using the budget sort of way to go around the rules a little bit was the negotiating ploy to keep republicans at the table, keep them negotiating a little bit. i'm fascinated what's going to happen tonight. there's the gang of six is going to be having a conference call. fi
here, they're saying, i have to have a government plan, or i will not vote for it. sean: harry reid is saying this option, the reconciliation process, he is using the terms "any means legislatively necessary" that they will use. >> no way. sean: you do not think they will do that. >> they will not get reelected. there is no way they can do it. about a month ago, nancy pelosi said she had all of the vote. i was with one of the blue dog democrats and they said she had 100 votes that she did not have. we have to keep going to the town hall meetings. let them know what we believe. they do not have the votes. sean: i have been spending a lot of time investigating the systems. we will have a special on friday night right here on this program. the canadian medical association is saying that canadacare is imploding. there was a story out of vancouver where they will have to -- thousands of surgeries are being cut because they cannot afford them. there was an article in great britain were a woman gave birth on the pavement because they would not send an ambulance for her. is that what will h
harry reid and christopher dodd and barbara boxer are showing vulnerability in the polls. there is reason to believe that the democrats, for the first time in a couple of elections, are vulnerable. bill: where will we be one month from now, will we have moved the ball forward? >> the real issue is to get consensus in the democratic party. ramming through a bill within a narrow majority of the senate and house, losing a lot of democratic votes, that is not the right way to go. bill, thank you. -- bill: thank you. megyn:ç top democrats are askig insurance companies to open up their books. some are calling it an audit. çis this oversight, or are democrats using your taxpayer dollars to control the financial industry? bill: we are going to come to a man who works at a news and parks -- amusement parks and we will talk about the dangers. gecko vo: you see, it's not just telling people geico could save 'em hundreds on car insurance. it's actually doing it. gecko vo: businessmen say "hard work equals success." well, you're looking at, arguably, the world's most successful bu
that harry reid is considering a plan to break the plan into two parts. put the more expensive reform
and the words of senate majority leader harry reid among the possibilities the plans under consideration by senator reid according to "the wall street journal," split the legislation in two. that would be divide and conquer, a strategy that would allow democrats to go it alone according to some of their leaders on the most expensive parts of the bill and then perhaps work with republicans on parts where there is more agreement. congressional sources tell us this is just one of many possibilities now being considered by the democratic leadership and the white house. >>> in a move that some fear to be outright retaliation for opposing the president's health care proposals, a congressional committee led by congressman henry waxman sent a letter to dozens of the country's private health insurance companies demand demanding financial information on their employees. the letters reportedly not sent to other industry groups some of which support the president's plan. a copy of the waxman letter obtained by "lou dobbs tonight" shows that congress wants to know the salary, the bonus, stock option,
of the g.o.p., and also we heard from the senate majority leader, harry reid's spokesman saying "we will not make a decision to pursue reconciliation. this is the process of the vote, until we have exhausted efforts to produce a bipartisan bill. however, patience is not unlimited. we are determined to get something done this year by any legislative means necessary." so what about this? let's bring in our panel, steve hayes with the week hadly standard, and a.b. stoddard, associate writer of the hill and byron williams. >> eric can cantor is right. in the house, they have been going it alone since the beginning. remember the fight in the energy committee between the blue dog democrats? the reason they were having that fight is because they made the decision at the beginning that they weren't going to get any republican votes at all. they drafted the bill by themselves and have been pushing it by themselves. as far as the house is concerned, the democrats have always been going it alone. as far as the senate is concerned, they have been having negotiations with three, count 'em three
leader harry reid says democrats have not reached any decisions just yet, but here is what he did say. quote, patience is not unlimited, and we are determined to get something done this year by any legislative means necessary. and today mitt romney, former massachusetts governor and presidential candidate, explained why he thinks the president is struggling to find a compromise on health care reform. >> if the president wants to get something done, he needs to put aside the extreme liberal wing of his party, work together with middle votes of his party, work with republicans as well, and get a plan that gets people insured without having the government take over insurance. >> but president obama says he still wants to negotiate with republicans. here is what he said a short time ago on the michael smerconish program. >> i'm confident we're going to get it done, and as far as negotiations with republicans, my attitude has always been let's see if we can get this done with some consensus. i would love to have more republicans engaged and involved in this process. >> adrielle is a report
. and the stocks were right. harry reid's summit turned into basically a natural gas love-fest. now i'm starting to see similar action with nuclear. shaw group, the infrastructure company that's been my favorite nuclear play, because building nuclear plants is a big part of its business, it makes up 61%. has been moving higher. even though its most recent quarter was disappointing. shaw group reported a 3% earnings miss and it lowered its earnings forecast on july 9th. but guess what. the stock is up 25% since then. what does that tell you? why? see, i think the market may be pricing in better prospects for the nuclear industry. obama was willing to compromise. he added nuclear to the dubious climate change bill that the house of representatives passed and his energy secretary has said he's committed to starting the construction of new nuclear plants. something we haven't seen in this country in a generation. in addition to supporting a program to help financial new nukes. right now, shaw group has three nuclear projects, all awarded before obama was sworn in. it's possible the company could win
the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid to keep the federal government out of my health care, period. >> when you turned 65, they're getting into your health care whether you like it or not. medicare is a government program. >> i want medicare to be privatized. it shouldn't be a government program. it's the thing that is driving up health care costs, not that we don't have a public option. it's medicare, medicaid and s-chip. the government run programs that are running up health care costs. that's where the reform ought to be. >> so you want to get rid of what's known as hcfa and all that will government apparatus, replace it with private sector health care, with private sector insurance? >> amen. >> let me ask you this. you keep skipping over this birther thing. a half dozen members of what was your delegation, you built that delegation, you built that republican stronghold down there people like that, they are are birthers and raise the questions of the president's legitimacy. the implication is this guy ought to be picked up because he was never naturalized and therefore, in the country i
majority leader harry reid decides he wants to use reconciliation. you would have to get over a number of hurdles. it is not clear that the health- care bill can make it over those hurdles that have been set up in the legislative process. the top hurdle is the piece of legislation has to be paid for for five years and has to be a deficit neutral after that. as we have seen, that is not the case with what is on the table right now. trace: what about the political risk? what is the risk of the democrats saying we will go this alone? >> essentially, republicans from that point on would be committing to gumming up the worms. they would be left out of a massive piece of legislation. thereby, they would likely do everything they could do to slow down every other piece of legislation that the democrats are trying to get troops. -- that the democrats are trying to get through. there's a lot that has to be done. the first is funding the 12 appropriations bills that have yet to come out. some of them are still in committee. some of them have to be voted on by the end of october. then you have ca
challenge, yeah. >> the budget. >> yes. yes, sir? >> the spokesman for senator harry reid said that while they intend to -- their hope is that it will be a bipartisan health care reform efforts, they will get health care reform accomplished "by any legislative means necessary," and i'm wondering if you could walk us through -- obviously, people in the white house have been talking to each other, strategizing about different ways that this can be done. first of all, could you comment on today's "wall street journal" story about the discussions about possibly splitting up the bill, but also, what are the thoughts? obviously, we all know that your intention is that it be a bipartisan bill, but beyond that, what are you planning for? >> well, and i said this this morning, i read the story in the "journal." i've tried to get guidance from people. i have not been able to, largely because many people i get that from are on vacation. we'll try to get you better guidance on that in terms of splitting up bills. >> the numbers. that be good. >> the story also had in there that the president is going
and harry reid and all of these people who continue to make us feel like we have to fight for our american freedoms? [cheers and applause] >> weaken both the stereotype. in the past couple of weeks, there have been three very high- profile republicans that got caught with their mistresses. i am not going to stereotype. i am in a party with a navy admiral, a navy corporal. my good friend jim marshall is in the ranger hall of fame. it does not make me any of those things, but i am proud to be there with those people. i am pro-life. >> did you say that you work with thi >> did you say you were working on this bill with schumer for the immigration thing? >> no, keith schuler. -- heith schuler. >> let's talk about schumer for a minute. >> he is a senator out of new york. >> he is planning to ram through this health care bill with a vote of the 50. can you fight against that for us in mississippi? [applause] >> i regret that i will have to ask you to repeat your question. i could not hear you. >> the question was, he has threatened to run this health care bill through with a vote of 50 after thi
the people but actually leaders and the house from man to pose a to harry reid and things leaders have said about bush and not once but did bush ever complain or said anything about his opposition. the fact that had a shoe thrown at him, and posts like huffington post and moveon.org -- i wish people would get away from the name calling on all of the stuff altogether which blind and kind of distracts us from the issue at hand which is the issue that is being debated now, cap-and-trade, whether it is health care, or whatever. stop being so emotional about political things, whether it is barack obama or the republicans, we should not take glee in uplifting a mere man. it is about the greatness of this country and the things we need to do to help and continue to make this country the greatest nation in the world. host: the word is out from scotland. you know there was going to be a decision as to whether or not the lockerbie bombing would be free on compassionate grounds because he has prostate cancer. the associated press just ran this, scotland's justice minister has freed the terminally ill
democrats talk about a go it alone approach, harry reid says he still prefers a bipartisan deal, but added, patience is not unlimited. >>> and there's the hanging question -- is the white house willing to pass reform without a public option? what would that look like? "american morning" jim acosta is in boston where people may already know the answer to that question. and they're imminently familiar -- >> that's right. >> with universal health care. morning, jim. >> that's correct, john. you're right. earlier this week, as you know, the white house took a lot of heat from democrats when it seemed to back away from the public option in the plans for health care reform. what does reform look like without a public option? according to health care experts, it looks a lot like romney care. >> reporter: if washington wants to reform health care with bipartisan support, consider what former republican presidential candidate mitt romney did as governor in democratic massachusetts. >> you don't have to have a public option. you don't have to have government get in the insurance business to make it
. not just the people but leaders in nancy pelosi to harry reid and not once did bush say anything or anything about his opposition. the fact that he had a shoe thrown at him and posts like the "huffington post" and other media took glee on them. i wish people would get away from these the name-calling and all come together which blinds and kind of distracts us from the issue at hand which is the issue hayes been debated. whether it's cap-and-trade, or whatever. top being emotional about political figures. whether it's barack obama or it's a republican, we should not take glee in uplifting a mere man. it's about the greatness of this country and the things that we need to do to help in continuing to make this country the greatest nation in the world. thank you. >> well, the word is out from scotland. you knew that there was going to be a decision about whether or not the lockerbie bomber would be freed on compassionate grounds because he got terminal prostate cancer. the associated press runned this this, sco 's justice minister has freed t terminal ill lockerbie bomb on compassion
